Last Day, otherwise known as First Night

Monday, December 31, 2012

Columbus, Ohio, is celebrating another First Night, alcohol free, as usual. I have no idea whether my two eldest girls are attending the event or not. I have never attended said event. I expect that they will let me know one way or the other within a couple of hours.

However, I think First Night is a great idea. Fireworks at midnight, and lots of fun, or so I understand. We had the good fortune to attend New Year's Eve on Manhattan a couple of years ago. However, we never got close to the area, although our hotel was only three blocks away! The event organizers have all attendees appear REALLY EARLY on the 31st, stand all day within cordoned-off areas, and leave only at the risk of not getting back in. No food, no bathroom. We watched the ball drop . . . on our hotel television!!

I will not likely be awake at midnight to see the beautiful Waterford Ball drop at Times Square on TV tonight. But that is OK.

For us, the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl Game are far more important. I guess that shows that we truly are Southern Californians (by birth).

Munchies, bean soup, etc. will be available for post-midnight revellers at our house. Well, actually by 9 am on New Year's Day.

Happy New Year's Day, Sparkpeople!
